One of those rough days.

So, getting back to a normal life that includes blogging has been more difficult then I expected. I really am trying though, more for myself than for readers, but I hope that there are some readers that enjoy reading some of what I have to say. I actually have quite a lot on my mind today.

-I've been feeling slightly homesick. I know that home right now is with my husband, Tyler, but there are just those times when I miss my momma. So I am homesick for my momma.

-Being upset gives me a headache. I've been trying to keep my mind on positive things, but it seems that although things have been going rather well this summer it is my time for some trials. I know that after everything that is going on right now I will be stronger and a better person, I just can't help but want things to go my way this time. I am grateful to my Heavenly Father for the things that have gone well this summer, don't get me wrong.

-My music video for today is actually one by Hannah Montana, you may think it's ridiculous, but this is how I feel today.

2 weeks of marriage

So Ty and I have been married for two weeks and I figure it's about time for me to post something (pictures and such). It's been awhile since the last post because things just got so busy right before the wedding and after it. For our honeymoon we went to southern Utah and northern Arizona. It was fun, but exhausting and I got sick one night. Ty was awesome at taking care of me though, so it wasn't as bad as it could have been. Ty and I just moved into our first apartment in Logan, it's really cute and it is starting to look like a home. It's wonderful ;)

Yes, this is what I married. :)

MIA

It's a new month and so much has happened since my last post on July 19th! I am now married, finally. I think a 7th month engagement is long enough, don't you? We were sealed for time and all eternity in the Manti Temple on July 30th and it was absolutely beautiful! It was a very good day. Just last night we got back from our honeymoon, which was a blast. We drove around southern Utah and northern Arizona and went to places which include: Zion, Bryce Canyon, Historic Flagstaff, the Grand Canyon, etc. I had so much fun with Tyler. More of our married life adventures can be read about here.
Now, for what is on my mind today.
-It's really hard for me to forgive others and even myself sometimes. But why should I hold onto anger and hurt? It does me absolutely no good to do so. Most of the time when I let these negative feelings fester the only person I am hurting is myself, and yet I still find it in myself to hold grudges and to find offense when none was meant in the first place. I need to find it in myself to get over the wrongs that have been done to me and just forgive. The love that is felt when I have truly forgiven someone is hard to describe, but it is a very beautiful thing.
-Road trips are fun, but exhausting. Planning for a fun busy time was good, but it's nice to be home and just relax. I could probably sleep straight for a couple of days if I really tried to.
-My husband, Tyler sang in our sacrament meeting today. He sang Lead, Kindly Light. This version I've posted is sung by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. It is a beautiful hymn and I've made it my song of the day. Hope you enjoy your Sunday wherever you may be!
